A cyclist makes a turn along the UA mall.

The University of Arizona is hosting four workshops this week to get the public’s input on its bicycle and pedestrian study, which they launched last year.

The UA and Pima Association of Governments contracted ALTA Planning, a Portland Ore. planning company specializing in bicycling and walking planning.

Starting tomorrow, members of the public can join walking and bicycling audits to help determine where there is a critical need for bicycling and walking facilities.

Here is what the planners say about the study and public sessions:

Transportation Services and the Pima Association of Governments is working on improving walking and bicycling at and around the University of Arizona campus. The project will guide the development of bicycle and pedestrian facilities and programs in the area over the next several years.

You are invited to join us for a public workshop, bike audit, and walk audit to discuss issues for bicycling and walking, help identify locations where bicycle and pedestrian facilities are most needed, and brainstorm solutions.

Here is the schedule of public sessions that will allow participants to walk and ride with the planners.

  1. tame day, I’ve had days where getting off my bike and walking probably would’ve been a little quicker and a whole lot safer
